A blog about cars in Aberdeen.

This is a blog about cars in Aberdeen because most people aspire to the convenience of personal motor transport, pay dearly for the privilege, provide much employment, contribute greatly in taxes, and then people expect them to ‘leave the car at home’, while their money is spent creating cycle lanes and the like for freeloading cyclists.

The Anatomy of the Aberdeen Street.

Lots to see in this photo which demonstrates the anatomy of an Aberdeen Street: in this case, Broomhill Road.

  1. Essential Services. The driver of the Aberdeen Van EJZ3361 is performing essential services, so may park with impunity on the single line whenever necessary.
  2. PaveParking. Aware that parking on the single line during normal working hours might attract a fine, the driver of this Aberdeen Van mitigates the harm this may cause to traffic flow (and thus economic growth) by PaveParking his way out of the traffic stream.
  3. No walking. The pavement is for bins. And temporary signs. And sign stanchions. And all other sorts of urban clutter vital street furniture which supports motor transport.
